Can the bible be looked at like we would look at a Homeschooling Curriculum??

What if I told you that the bible is just like a Homeschool Curriculum?

• Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Philippians 4:8

What things are your children thinking on? Truth? Honest things? Just things?
Pure things? Lovely things? Things of Good Report? Virtuous things? Things of Praise??
BTW.. THINK ON THESE THINGS.. That is a command.. So are you and your children thinking on these things??

 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. Colossians 3:2

Where are your affections? Are they based on things above?? Or things on the earth..

I won't lie.. Sometimes I get the joy of being able to say YES.. My affections are wholly set on Jesus Christ and his Kingdom.. But as a mom my affections are also on this world.. that I have to send my babies out on.. I have to keep a barometer out there on what's happening. And often times my ability to keep the balance is is just not where it needs to be.. So if your in that boat.. Your not alone..

• Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 1 John 2:15

Weigh that though here just a moment.. That is an EITHER OR STATEMENT.. Either he loves the world.. Or he loves the father.. One of these are true.. the other isn't.

• And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. Ephesians 6:4

Don't be too harsh with children.. Not saying have no boundaries but you need to understand if your too harsh they will push back.. and become rebellious. 

 But refuse profane and old wives' fables, and exercise thyself rather unto godliness.1 Timothy 4:7

Notice here the bible tells us that it requires EXERCISE of the faith and discernment to the pursuit of Godliness.. So don't be disgusted or disappointed when you don't make it on the first try..

• O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called: 1Timothy 6:20

Don't be swept away by things that aren't taught for your edification.. And please remember that the only reason science and the bible disagree is because there are men in both camps who are trying to make it so..
If they honestly used the findings of nature through scientific methods.. THERE WOULD BE NO Clashing..

It'd be a fine running machine..
